‘Outfoxed’ nabs DVD distrib

Disc already available online

“Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism” has been picked up for DVD release by New York-based Disinformation Com‘s Ryko Distribution.

Company is making the DVD available immediately. The movie that assails Murdoch media outlets such as Fox News Channel for biased and conservative-leaning journalism generated a flurry of national press coverage after a media screening of the film Monday.

Disinformation recently released the DVD of “Outfoxed” filmmaker Robert Greenwald’s “Uncovered: The Whole Truth About the Iraq War,” which will get a subsequent theatrical release Aug. 13.

In contrast, Miramax spent months nailing down a DVD distributor for Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11” after the movie won the Palme d’Or at Cannes in May and negotiated for weeks after lining up Lions Gate and IFC Films to handle theatrical distribution before striking a deal last week with Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment.
